A Mushroom Moment

Pinwheel Marasmius, <i>Marasmius rotula</i>, grows on logs throughout the east, and revives after rains to greet the naturalist in the morning woods.

“It’s marvelous though when we’re surprised by coincidences of light or sound in our presence – that’s one of the beautiful things about hunting mushrooms is that they’re, they grow up and they’re fresh at just a particular moment and our lives are actually characterized by moments, hmm?”

composer John Cage speaking to Terry Gross in 1982
